The Uniform Personal Data Protection Act: Could the New Model Law Solve the U.S. Privacy Conundrum?

February 4, 2022


12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. EST
Friday, February 4, 2022

Like the Uniform Commercial Code (adopted by 50 states) and the Revised Uniform Fiduciary Access to Digital Assets Act (adopted by 46 states), the Uniform Commission’s new model law — the Uniform Personal Data Protection Act (UPDPA) — could see widespread state-by-state adoption.

Please join a one-hour webinar featuring key players involved in the drafting and development of the Uniform Law Commission’s (ULC) new model privacy law.

The discussion will address:

  • What is the Uniform Law Commission?
  • What is the background for developing this model privacy law?
  • What is in UPDPA, and how does it differ from GDPR, CCPA/CPRA, etc.?
  • Does UPDPA provide meaningful privacy protection and individual rights?
  • How would compliance with UPDPA be achieved and enforced?
  • What is the current status of UPDPA in the states, and what are its future prospects?
  • Would UPDPA deter federal privacy legislation, or serve as a model for it?

We invite you to submit additional questions for discussion to dcevents@sidley.com.
